Domaine George Lignier et Fils Morey Saint-Denis Clos des Ormes Premier Cru 2017

A resolutely red colour. The bouquet features tremendous complexity, with in general the fruitier aromas prevailing during the earlier years before giving way to some of the meatier tones. Spicier fragrances effuse throughout ageing, instilling a unique and special character associated with Côte de Nuits wines.

The Morey-St-Denis 1er cru "Clos des Ormes" will provide the suitable accompaniment for your white meat and grilled meat dishes, as well as with a selection of creamier cheeses. This wine is extremely well-built and such an architecture offers a minimum 6-year ageing potential that can easily extend 15 years for more mature vintages.

Domaine George Lignier et Fils Morey Saint-Denis Clos des Ormes Premier Cru 2017

This vineyard was initially founded by monks at the nearby Cîteaux Abbey and lies at the foot of the Clos de la Roche parcel (in the Grand Cru growing area). This land has been officially certified as lying in the Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru appellation zone, with a total area of 4.50 hectares. It was nearly entirely replanted following heavy soil erosion during the 1963 season. The presence of winter cover crops serves to avoid this kind of soil disaster thanks to surface roots that keep the ground from eroding. In addition, the humus input into the soil offers attractive properties. This parcel spans 2 hectares and yields a production of 80 hectolitres (10,000 bottles). The vine is cared for using methods that best suit the particular soil and varietal. Pruning follows the simple Guyot cane technique.

Vinification

Vinification of the harvest, 80% of which has been previously destemmed, entails a three-step operation:
- pre-fermentation cold maceration for 3 to 5 days;
- transformation of the must into wine during 4 or 5 days;
- then 3 or 4 more days to complete the extraction of soluble matter (tannins, anthocyanins, etc.) in the right proportions.
After pressing, the new wine is poured directly into 228-litre oak barrels (30% new barrels per vintage). During the 18 months of maturation enriched by contact with the wood, racking is
performed twice to eliminate the lees.
The bottling stage ultimately takes place at the estate under the winegrower's watchful eye.
